`**`

symbol is used for arithmetic exponentiation operator

arithmetic exponentiation operator takes two values/variables as operands and returns the result of the left operand raised to the power of right operand

```
a ** b //a raised to the power of b
6 ** 4 //6 raised to the power of 4
```

## Examples

1. `a`

raised to the power of `b`

using exponentiation operator
